To say London is the place to be at the moment is a complete understatement. With London Fashion Week ending yesterday and the BRITS tonight, it's fair to say that anyone who is anyone in the style and showbiz industry has been seen walking our streets of late and what a fashion extravaganza we shared in over the last five days!
London, although the shortest of the Fashion Week's always seems to pack the most in and with back-to-back schedules from a range of classic and cutting edge designers, we were treated to a celebration of colour, cut, texture and fun in a variety of stunning settings.
Here are the top four trends we'll be championing come Autumn...
This was easily THE texture trend of London Fashion Week. Almost every designer was seen flaunting their models flesh with a variety of sheer fabrics - weather was clearly not a limiting factor when these creations were dreamt up. Unfortunately, these are perhaps not the most practical designs for day-to-day wear however, we are sure that some more wearable alternatives will pop up between now and AW16.
One colour and one colour alone dominated the catwalks over the last few days - PINK. Love it or hate it, is you want to follow the fashion trends this hue is something you will need to embrace sharpish! We saw every shade on the spectrum, from soft, dusty roses, to bold, hot pinks; there's no denying that everyone's winter wardrobe is going to be a little brighter than usual when fall arrives.
For those of us that fret about what to wear when doing anything social after work, we needn't worry any longer! This autumn/winter will see the arrival of workwear everywhere; whether it's a trouser suit, skirt suit, crisp collar or sharp blazer the fash-pack have dubbed our 9-5 wardrobe as officially chic. Think luxe, heavy fabrics, clean lines and minimal design to set off this style - it's time to make your office your runway.
It's time to shed any preconceptions about wearing too many colours in one outfit. As we can see, anything bright and beautiful is in and looking like an artist's paint palette is a totally acceptable look. Whether all the colours are on one piece of clothing, or you are combining and clashing with various vibrant pieces, we urge you to keep a Dulex colour chart in mind and see where that inspiration takes you...
